Posters may be retained for display during the Commission meeting on June 4th if space is available. The OTC is a multi-state organization created under the federal Clean Air Act to advise the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on transport issues and develop and implement regional solutions to the ground-level ozone problem in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.

For more information about the OTC, go to http://www.otcair.org/. The OTC annual meeting will be attended by cabinet-level representatives from the 12 states and the District of Columbia that are members of the OTC.

Topics: Current issues in air quality -- e.g., monitoring, modeling, transport, atmospheric chemistry, emission inventory methodologies, etc. Research work must be at a senior-level undergraduate or graduate level.
